I am so disappointed, friends.


I'd been looking forward to I am a Pole since Colbert's Epic Beyond All Epic interview with the (deceased as of today noooo my childhood) Maurice Sendak.

Which was absolutely amazing.

But, um. I didn't... I didn't laugh at all.

I mean, I laughed at the idea of it. But that was before the physical copy was in my hand. Then there was no laughing. There was some eye rolling. And a little bit of desperate page flipping. And a stripper, which was fun. But no laughing.

Mostly just boredom with a funny joke that probably shouldn't have been executed in real life.

Since I normally find Stephen Colbert vastly amusing, this was a sad, sad read.

Sorry, Stephen! You know I'll still vote for you when you run for president!

Oh. Also. Really? Really:

Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) I can't offer anything on I Am A Pole.. since I haven't read it (but I did read I Am America! and was disappointed...) but I vehemently echo the the "noooo my childhood" sentiment. :(

Jubilation Lee It's super sad! Who will encourage me to run away from home and become a monster, now?!
